In November 2012, TVB actress Candy Chang (張慧雯) and a male friend were arrested by the police for possession of marijuana. The 23-year-old actress, best known for starring in the highly popular The Hippocratic Crush < On Call 36小時> last year, was said to be a new favorite of TVB executive, Virginia Lok(樂易玲), who had plans to promote Candy as the next big fadan.
However, Candy’s arrest last November severely impeded her advancements in her career. Candy was subsequently “frozen” by TVB and removed from the cast of Master Understands <師父‧明白了>
On January 9, Candy was seen attending a private costume fitting at TVB Studios. She revealed that she will be guest starring in some upcoming episodes for the sitcom, Come Home Love <愛·回家>.
Regarding rumors that claimed Candy was benched by TVB, Candy said, “TVB never said they would halt my jobs. If there was suitable work, they would arrange it for me. The company is treating me well. I am very thankful!”
Come Home Love producer, Tsui Yu On (徐遇安), confirmed Candy’s guest appearance in the sitcom, and said, “I never received TVB’s notice about her absence. TVB never said anything regarding a change in cast.”
Candy will return to the cast of The Hippocratic Crush 2 next month. Virginia Lok also clarified that TVB never took out the bench on Candy, and said, “At first we were worried about her situation, that she would not be able to return to work. A producer was worried that her getting kicked out of the cast would affect continuity in the series. However, The Hippocratic Crush 2 will begin filming next month as scheduled; nothing has been altered. She needs to work hard!”
